Pathways to achieve National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) in India

This study, in collaboration with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), examines India’s National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), existing policies and emission control measures aimed at curbing air pollution, factors contributing to air pollution across the country, and future pathways towards meeting NAAQS over the coming decades. The study also highlights the exposure of citizens to high levels of PM 2.5 across various parts of the country and suggests the need to adopt advanced emission control technologies along with a low-carbon growth model.
